Pest Control in East Lake, Chula Vista, CA

East Lake is a newer community in Chula Vista with lots of amenities, from local parks to various shopping centers and its very own lake. East Lake, or sometimes spelled Eastlake, like Otay Ranch in Chula Vista, are suburban meccas surrounded by native chaparral and wildlife. This poses a few issues when it comes to keeping pests out of the home.

Good news! Hearts Pest Management is pleased to be servicing the residents of East Lake for all their pest control needs. At Hearts, we specialize in “Green” pest control as an alternative to harsh, chemical treatments because we care not only about the environment but most importantly, the health and welfare of your family and pets!

Going Green with Hearts Pest Management

At Hearts, our service professionals are EcoWise Certified!

California’s ever increasing environmental awareness has East Lake residents demanding more in the way of green products and services. Pest control is no exception.

People want safer ways of controlling ants and spiders and other pests without worrying about their families or pets being exposed to chemicals.

In California, however, pest control companies are not allowed to use the word “safe” in regards to any pest control product be it organic or standard.

Even some “natural” over the counter methods such as using Borax can be toxic to a degree. At Hearts, we target specific pests with the appropriate product, be it traditional or botanical based.

Indoor / Outdoor Pests in East Lake

Hearts Pest Management provides residents in East Lake with a variety of pest control services, including organic pest control.

There are many insects, spiders, and other critters, including mice and rats, that are able to find their way indoors.

It doesn’t matter whether you have an older home or a newly constructed one, mice will squeeze through a hole the size of a dime! And rats, they’ll chew on that hole until its big enough for them to squeeze through too.

Preventive pest control is often required to ensure your home is as free as possible from pests. At Hearts, we practice I.P.M. (Integrated Pest Management) solutions in which your service professional will share his or her knowledge of pest prevention.

The goal of Integrated Pest Management is to reduce or eliminate pesticide by utilizing various methods of pest prevention and largely organic solutions, devoted to smart environmental stewardship and customer safeguards.

Did you know rats are attracted to and eat snails? We have both rat and snail control!

Here are just some of the IPM methods we suggest homeowners embrace:

  • Trim tree branches back and away from the roof
  • Check for gaps, cracks, and small holes around air conditioners, pipes, windows and sliding doors, baseboards and other areas around and in the home.
  • Careful of overwatering plants along the house and in potted plants; trim plants and shrubs away from the house about 12 inches.
  • Try to keep trash cans away from the house and use tight lids.
  • Keep pet food stored in the garage in tightly sealed containers.

It's our policy to treat, whether with traditional or organic products, only when and where necessary. We care about beneficial insects such as honeybees and lacewings and so we avoid spraying flowering plants.

Ant and Spider Control in East Lake

Argentine ants are an invasive species that have taken over California!

Ants can bite, sting, transmit disease and present a serious nuisance factor, especially when they start invading your food cabinets.

In California, we have ants all year long, sometimes you don’t see them but they’re there. …

Certain ant species prefer sweets while others crave protein … our service technicians understand ant behaviors and know how to treat according to an ants’ taste preference.

We don’t just treat the current ant infestation, we inspect and try to locate where the ants are coming from and eliminate any ant nests.

Western Spotted Orb-weaver (Neoscona oaxacensis)

Spiders, unlike ants with scouts and visible trails, spiders hide. They’re sneaky that way; mainly because spiders don’t want to interact with you anymore than you want to see or be bit by them!

The big, beautiful, and intricate webs you see in the garden are made by beneficial spiders, orb-weavers. They’re pretty harmless unless you happen to be a fly, or other insect that gets tangled in their web. …

It’s the widow spiders one needs to be wary of because black and brown widows are toxic to humans.

Spider treatment is part of our regular service and we’ll also remove any webs and egg sacs around the perimeter of your home, including your garage if need be.
